New smile in less than 24 hours?
It sounds practically impossible doesn’t it? But thanks to a technique called composite bonding, getting a new smile in a day is achievable providing a dentist deems you suitable for the treatment.
Composite veneers – achieved via the art of composite bonding – have grown in popularity over the last two years, and it’s not always about striving for a perfectly symmetrical ‘Hollywood smile’. While many patients do want to achieve an impactful, full smile, sometimes others just want to tweak a few teeth. Composite bonding caters for both of those needs.
The treatment involves the dentist re-shaping your teeth by hand, using material known as composite to create composite veneers. Although they won’t have the longevity of porcelain veneers, they tend to be a more cost-effective option and can be completed in one sitting, often with little or no preparation required to natural teeth.
As the final result is purely down to the skill and ‘eye’ of the dentist, it’s essential that you do your research and ask to see before and after pictures of similar cases. Most dentists undertaking cosmetic treatments should be able to show you examples of their work, and this should form a key part of your consultation.
Below is a great 10-teeth composite veneer case I completed recently for a patient who wanted a more symmetrical, impactful smile.
